Subject: Passenger don't you hear me?
I always return to this Mississippi Uptown, quintessential Jerry. At first I kinda trashed this show on account of Jerry's voice being rough. But upon further consideration Jerry's voice sounds a whole lot worse early in the year and I can still enjoy those shows. And I'm always in the mood for a Passenger and the one here is fucking great. Did they ever play a bad version of this song during this era?

Subject: Tremendous show
I was at this show--went on the spur of the moment with a bunch of my high school friends, all home from college for Thanksgiving, which is why tickets were available. One of my friends, himself a pretty good guitar player but never a big Dead fan, to this day maintains that this was the greatest performance by a guitarist he ever witnessed. I think it was that Mississippi Half-Step that hooked him.

Subject: Pretty decent 78 show with some great moments
Best. Mississipi. Half-Step. Ever. Jerry's solos are a study in musical beauty and splendor, with not only the note sequence flowing like it was written out by a master composer, but every note itself flowing with emotion.

After Half-Step>Franklin's, the first set kind of trudges for a while, but picks up again with one of the better Tennessee Jed's, a ripping Passenger, and a storming Music Never Stopped. Second set is solid from beginning to end, although don't expect any Shakedown jamming -- they transition right into a longish Playin' reprise. Ollin Arrageed is a nice touch.

Only downers are Keith's spotty playing (to put it mildly), Jerry's cracking vocals, and Bob trying to learn slide guitar on stage during Stagger Lee.

Subject: DSO are NOT The Dead!
PaulKob said:"being too young to actually catch GD, my first Dark Star Orchestra was this show"

While that is fine & I hope you had a nice time, DSO is NOT, and never will be, equivalent to seeing The Grateful Dead! Not that you said they were, but a lot of people who never saw The Dead think so.

Subject: Cheers to THE GREAT CHARLIE MILLER!!!
Any show that was remastered or retouched by CHARLIE MILLER is considered GOLD in my book. He honors Dick Latvala very well indeed!!!

Another great one from the terrific trio

What a great recording of a neat later era Keith and Donna show. All of your favorites are included. This is a strong canidate for the Sirius/XM Audience Master Series. Don't hesitate to download/burn this one. A real gem. Thanks Joani/Paul/Charlie for bringing this tasty morsel to our ears.
